Outside, a woman with a questionable grasp of what being famous means, tried to whip up enthusiasm from the hypothermic crowd.

Loose Woman Nadia Sawalha seemed to have it sussed when she appeared wielding what looked like a crucifix. It turned out to be a soft toy mascot.

Nadia, after Cheggers stripped off, I'd have stuck with the crucifix. You might need it.
